bronze up!

Even though Im fairly tanned 99% of the time I hardly ever wear bronzer. I don't know why, I just don't really wear it. However thanks to the post Xmas chub I felt I needed a bit more contouring so decided to get myself a new bronzer. I picked up the Clarins Bronzing Duo in Medium from Debenhams. They also had an offer on where you can pick 3 supersize minis when you purchase 2 items from Clarins one being skincare. The Clarins Bronzing Duo is a really nice two sided matte powder, one shade is fairly light but the other is much darker. Mixed together they make the perfect glowing effect for the face, used alone the darker shade provides a really nice matte shade to contour the cheek bones. The powder is fairly matte but quite illuminating without being glittery. The texture is super soft and it buffs effortless into the skin for a silky smooth vevelty finish. I really like this product and I think the colour is perfect for my skin tone as the one side is fairly peachy and the other more brown. It doesn't look muddy or stark at all. Just beautiful, sun kissed and glowy!

  1. Absolutely love this, looks so pretty in the the pan! Saw this on Tanya Burr's video and thought it was stunning. Also like the fact it's completely matte as you said, i HATE bronzer with shimmer on me!
    Another one for my wishlist...! :)

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous! I don't use bronzers either but I'm very tempted by this one as it looks really soft and not too dark!

  6. This looks gorgeous and so easy to wear. I love products that combine a number of shades in one, so you can choose how much or how little colour to apply. Its nice that it is also matte and not too glittery. Definitely something Ill be looking at next time Im shopping :)
